Libtard fantasies: Superman protects illegal aliens from white supremacist with a machine gun

superman

The super hero is now a full-blown SJW.

From Hollywood Reporter: In the recent issue of Action Comics #987, “The Oz Effect,” released Wednesday, Superman arrives in the nick of time to protect a group of undocumented immigrants illegal aliens from a white man sporting an American flag bandanna, wielding a machine gun, who is going to shoot them for taking his job.

Superman blocks the bullets before they hit the terrified people. “Stop this!” Superman orders the gunman.

“Why?!” he responds. “They ruined me! Stole from me!” 

Grabbing the gunman by the collar and pulling him in close, Superman says, “The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you!” 

Police arrive, and Superman hands over the gunman and tells officers to make sure the victims are “safe and cared for.” An officer responds, “Anything you say, Superman!”

The moment comes just one week after President Donald Trump made the controversial announcement that he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy put in place by former President Barack Obama. He then gave Congress a window to save the program.

Still, the decision was decried by politicians, civil groups and celebrities alike. Nearly 800,000 individuals, known as Dreamers, have received protection to stay in the country through the program.

In addition to the DACA announcement, Trump was also slammed for comments he made just a few weeks prior when he appeared to be defending a group of white nationalists holding a rally in Charlottesville, Va., at which one protester to the rally was killed and numerous others injured.

Action Comics #987 is by Dan Jurgens, Viktor Bogdanovic, Jonathan Glapion, Jay Leisten and Mike Spicer.

Hollyweird is stuck on stupid: Gina Rodriguez’s “Dreamers” series hopes to rid America of the term “illegal”

gina rodriguez

Why is following the law so hard for folks to understand? I hope this series bombs.

From LA Times: By all appearances, Rafael Agustin had been the all-American high school student: he was class president, prom king and an honor roll student. But there was one hitch: he was also in the country illegally.

It was a discovery Agustin learned while applying for college in 1998 — before there was a program like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

“I was in shock,” the Ecuador-born writer-performer recalled during a recent phone interview with The Times. “I knew I was an immigrant — I remember a time when I didn’t speak English. But I didn’t know we were undocumented illegal immigrants.”

Agustin, now a U.S. citizen who received his undergraduate and post-graduate degrees from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television, has channeled that experience and created a series inspired by his life about an immigrant family, tentatively titled “Illegal.” The series is in development at the CW and is expected to be an hour-long dramedy that Agustin describes as an edgy Latino version of “The Wonder Years.”

The announcement came a day after the Trump administration’s decision to dismantle DACA, which has provided hundreds of thousands of young immigrants the ability to work legally in the U.S. and a temporary reprieve from deportation.

“Illegal” is one of two immigrant-related series that “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez has in development under an overall deal at CBS TV Studios for her I Can & I Will Productions. (The other, “Have Mercy,” is set up at CBS.)

LA Times interviewed these two and you can read the whole interview here.

The Times asked Gina, “What emotions were you feeling last Tuesday when it was announced Trump was dismantling the DACA program?”

Her response: “For me personally I was just devastated. My heart breaks for these young kids that are just trying. America just seems real brutal these days. Everything that I’ve grown up with and thought America stood for has just been destroyed by this administration time and time again. I’m just so afraid for young kids who fear not having anywhere to go. I just wish I could change it all, but I can’t.”

Hey Gina: If the kids really wanna try, have them go here.

Feminists are insufferable: Libtard Sophia Bush hits out at cruel trolls for “ripping her apart” on social media

sophia bush

Honey, if you’re gonna play on Twitter ya better wear your big girl pants.

From Daily Mail: Sophia Bush has hit out at cruel online trolls who ‘endlessly attack’ her on social media. The One Tree Hill star, 35, slammed  ‘groups of “fans”‘ who berate her lifestyle choices and said the the hurtful comments she is regularly subjected to leave her feeling ‘like s**t’.

Writing an impassioned post on Twitter on Wednesday, Sophia said: ‘Being alerted to groups of “fans” ripping your life, choices, and happiness apart in private chats feels like s*** y’all. Truly. More of her tweets:

  • Being endlessly attached by trolls and b****ed at for every single thing you do, also feels like s***. You can’t please everyone?
  • Well you sure can be ripped by everyone. Every day. Endlessly. You think I’m too private? That I owe you something? What does it need to,’ she wrote, before heading into another tweet.
  • be for kindness to be practice, and for something you don’t like to not get “A Beautiful Mind” level, INSANE plot and dissertation?
  • You don’t know me. You don’t know anyone that you don’t know personally, in fact. Remember that we’re all human. And try to be better. 
  • At, you know, being a HUMAN too. (sic).’

The actress revealed this is not the first time the ‘haters’ have insulted her and she admitted she is used to the spiteful remarks as she doesn’t consider their comments to be ‘original’.

After a one-tweet #DefendDACA interlude, she added: ‘And yes, for those asking. It’s literally EVERY GD second of EVERY GD day. So haters? You’re not even original. I’ve heard it all!’

And Sophia’s One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton – who portrayed Peyton Sawyer in the series – has supported her colleague.  She replied to Sophia’s rant saying: ‘PREACH Sis!!!! You’re a GD diamond!’

The actress shot to fame portraying Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill from 2003 to 2012. The popular show followed the lives of high school students living in North Carolina.  One Tree Hill boasted a cast that included Bethany Joy Lenz, James Lafferty, Lee Norris, and it made its star Chad Michael Murray a household name.  Sophia’s gone on to star on Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago P.D., while Hilarie has appeared in Lethal Weapon, Extant, and Hostages.

The actress tied the knot with her screen love interest Chad Michael Murray, 32, in Santa Monica, California, in April 2005, announcing their separation just five months later. The former couple were granted a divorce in December 2006, with Sophia later saying: ‘It devastates me now that I have been reduced to a Hollywood statistic – another joke marriage.  I never expected to be married more than once… because I knew what I was getting into and will always believe in love.’

U. of Miami offers DACA students $62K full scholarships

University of Miami (UM) is a private university of 16,848 students in 2015, and the 6th largest employer in Miami-Dade County. In 2017, U.S. News and World Report ranked UM as the 44th best national university in the United States.

Admission to UM is competitive and selective: In 2015, only 37.8% (or 12,625) of 33,416 undergraduate applicants were admitted. Incredibly, the average high school GPA of those admitted was 4.0, i.e., a perfect A grade; the median SAT score was 1300 (out of 1600).

Given the competitiveness of admissions, it is all the more outrageous that University of Miami is offering “Dreamers” — children who illegally entered the U.S. with their illegal alien parents — a full scholarship worth $62,000, as well as lower GPA and SAT standards.

Eduarto Neret reports for Campus Reform, Aug. 31, 2017, that University of Miami’s U Dreamers Program provides scholarships covering 100% of the “demonstrated financial need” of DACA students who reside in Florida, including tuition and fees, room and board, a meal plan, and student health insurance.

UM estimates that the total cost of attendance for an undergraduate student living on campus is slightly more than $66,000, of which at least $62,000 would be covered by the U Dreamers Program.

The Dreamer scholarship is “renewable for up to four academic years or such time [as is] required to complete the baccalaureate degree.”

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an unconstitutional Obama-era policy that protects from deportation illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children, and also authorizes them to work in the United States.

To qualify for the renewable $62K Dreamers scholarship, one must:

  • Be a Dreamer or DACA.
  • Must have attended an accredited Florida high school or, in the case of transfer students, “a regionally accredited institution in the State of Florida” and “have completed or will soon complete 60 credit hours or more at the time of application.”
  • Freshmen must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.2 and an SAT score of at least 1100 (55th percentile) or ACT score of at least 21; transfer students must maintain a 3.5 college GPA.

The examples of UM students Andrea Cicilia and Natalie Telfeja make clear how discriminatory the university’s U Dreamers Program is against students who are U.S. citizens.

Cicilia told Campus Reform she wasn’t accepted to UM outright nor offered any scholarship money although she had a high school GPA higher than 3.2 and an ACT score of 25:

“It’s disappointing and unfair that UM would give full scholarships to DACA students, especially when they can qualify with a lower GPA and lower test scores than me. Would I qualify for a full scholarship as a citizen with a 3.2 GPA and 21 on the ACT? Probably not.”

Transfer student Natalie Telfeja, who entered UM with a 3.7 GPA, said:

“I consider myself lucky to have the partial scholarship that I have. It’s not fair that an undocumented student with a lower GPA could qualify for a full scholarship over someone like me. They are practically receiving preferential treatment for their immigration status.”
